Is The Phnom Penh Post next to owe back taxes in Cambodia?

Post by taabarang »

"“No matter what happens and at any cost, the election must be held,” he said in the speech, warning against radio stations and newspapers that might “twist and pollute the situation”.
“I would hope that The Post, having had a pretty long life in Cambodia, would have learned more,” he said"

Sounds like a warning to me. Full article at

He could have been referring to the next bit he is reported to have said:
The premier went on to say that Cambodia successfully held elections in the midst of political instability in 1998, a year after he wrested full control of the country from Prime Minister Prince Ranariddh in bloody factional fighting.
But I think it presented a dual idea. That of remembrance and also of a warning.

BTW, voter turn out for the '98 elections was 93%.

Give them a reason to knock you over politically, they will.

They have to. Because the West may pull funding, only Uncle China will save Cambodia.

And China has stipulations to funding. "We don't want to work with anyone else. So follow Chinese doctrine, and be diligent on pulling weeds these next 6 months before the election. Then we'll be OK, and continue propping up your country for your ASEAN vote."

Ka-ching!!

Not if there's a fire, not even if you hear the sound of a thud from my home and one week later there's a smell coming from there that can only be a decaying human body and you have to hold a hanky to your face because the stench is so thick that you think you're going to faint.

Even then, don't come knocking...Not for ANY reason.

TBF if you wave a red rag at a bull you should not complain when he gores you. Unfortunately the western press in Camabodia has suffered from bad reporting by recently qualified journalist wanting to make their a name of themselves and has been very much a "mouthpiece of the west" to papraphrase an insult often thrown at Khmer press. They are not alone. In the past 2 years the BBC has published so called investigative pieces on subject I know a lot about and that was badly researched biased claptrap as well. Sadly the press reports its versions of events as determined by the editor and the owners and it is almost impossibl to find unbiased complete factual reports on anything anywhere

Ah, it all panders to the liberal leftists agenda, charity orgs, and perhaps "more civilized than thou" types.

No, because they don't owe any back taxes. They were always way ahead of the Daily when it came to accountability.
On a side-note - Bernard Krisher, later of the Cambodia Daily, wrote an inaccurate article in 1965 or so naming the Queen Mother Kossamak as a brothel and opium den owner. It turned out she only owned the land that these independent businesses were on. The article caused such a fuss that there were riots in Phnom Penh and the US and British embassies were ransacked.
Silence, exile, and cunning.

Did these independent businesses or their landlord pay tax on the profits? :stir:

Please put that quote into English. For what it's worth very few posters here have balls, much less crystal ones.

As a side note, "perhaps "more civilized than thou" types.". .,that ironically describes your writing style.
